Are these the same as the limited edition olives? I know the back pocket tag is supposed to say "limited edition" in red on the tag but i dont see it in the pic

-30 pounds with summer sale code, comes out to 80 pounds shipped to usa = 140 usd

Stopped by the RL SF store. Picked up the boondocker boot ($175), slim fit in storm grey ($153) and the twill in faded khaki ($100) all after extra 25%. Definitely worth checking in store for lower prices. Wanted the Thompson jacket but they only had L and XL left. Price was $400 before the extra 25% if anyone is interested. SA was Joseph, helpful dude.

Hows the quality on the boondocker boot? Is it light? How would you compare to iron rangers/beckmans?

^^if you call a local RRL store they can search a store that has it and ship it to you for about $15.

Never handled red wings before so I can't compare. I own last seasons Adams boot which is the exact same boot except with a different sole and leather upper. In comparison to the Adams they are definitely much more lighter. They are extremely comfortable right out the box. Toe box isn't as round as it appears on the site as the boot seems unlined so they'll prob conform to your feet faster.

Ended up hitting up the Bleeker st store today.  I am so glad i didn't get the Allen Work Jacket.  Yes it looks cool but the fabric was not impressive or maybe I just thought it would have been a heavier fabric.  It was quite light & def not worthy of its original $690 price tag.  There was so many better things I wasn't interested in off the web but thought were great in person.  The new sawtooth was made out of this silky shiny denim (amazing)  The Star Wrangler shirt has a great color IRL.  The indigo dyed ranch shirt was a must have imo & is def better in person.  The color is nothing like the web which does no justice.  The slim fit ranch jeans are pretty great as well with some cool vintage looking tags attached.  Pearson Jacket imo was a step above the Alllen work jacket & had this nice bright indigo color similar to the web.  The bloomingtons were cool  & worth a shot after the 25% off.  The fit was like a slim pair of jeans but they were a sz to small (33)  I thought the bags were top notch including 2 brand new (not on web yet) heavy denim w/leather strap  bags that came in either a duffle or messenger.  They also had these amazing vintage boro scarves & bags that retailed for $200-$300.  Lets not for get the rough out bowery boots in dark brown hidden on the shelf.  They were a sz 10 & beautiful

 

I spoke with Jason for over an hour & totally geeked out on everything RRL.  He was good to talk to because most of the SA's don't know much about names of the items or what season...He had a plethora of knowledge which was cool.  All in all I spent a good 1.5 hrs there touching & trying on just abt everything I was interested in

These are the bags

And I hope these are the bowery boots since the new engineer boots are thrash

can't agree more about the allen work jacket which is not as good as it looks like on their website.

Does anyone know if the Japanese denim used on the 1936 buckle back slim rigid is the same as the Japanese denim that was used on the slim fit rigid? In terms of weight, texture, etc?

And is it just limited to in store purchases/just RRL? Or does Polo Blue Label have some as well?

if you're referring to the same thing i'm thinking of, i don't think they are not RRL- or blue label-specific... they're just usually scattered in those sections in-store. i've seen "RL Vintage" pieces from abercrombie, ll bean, and banana republic to name a few.

i love this. it feels good knowing i can wait for a sale nod[1].giffoo.gif
post #20863 of 20960
You could always add all the quantities to cart in every size for reference. Clearly RL wants to look like ebay or amazon and generate hysteria by letting everyone know last one in stock!!
post #20864 of 20960

Which RRL store in NYC do you find the most special and which has the biggest choice?

 

And are they open on Sundays? And if so, what time do they open (couldn't find the info on the web). tia

has anybody seen these Gaucho buckle backed jeans in person and could you comment on the 'black brown' color - ie. is i overdyed black over brown? and if you've tried them on, how's the fit?

they appear to be high waisted, long rise, is that true?
